I had no problem opening or seeing file.
Thanks again Roy useful information to have to hand
It wouldn’t open on my iPad, no problems on the laptop. Thanks Roy!
Geeezz, I used to have all that stuff memorized:shock: now I need a cheat sheet;-)
Getting old is better than getting none!:mrgreen:
Cannot open the link, either.
Here it is at dropbox .
I will delete this one after a week.
This one is a lot clearer. I had to reduce the other one to upload it here.
Here is a cool formula.
It will give you how many sheets of drywall you will need.
I have used this one over and over again.
The last house I used this on I only needed another 1/2 sheet.
Total square foot of home divided by the square foot of the board times 3.5
Example: 2000 ft home using 4X12 sheets . The 48 is the size of the board in sf ( i.e. 4X12=48 ) . If they were 4X8 sheets it would be 32.
2000 sf / 48 = 41.666 X 3.5 = 145.833 sheets (using 4X12 sheets)
2000 sf /32=62.5 =218.74 sheets (using 4X8 sheets)
If you have a useful formula post it.
It been a while since I posted these.
For the new guys these can be helpful.
The previous links above this post are dead.

Thanks for reposting Roy!
The old carpenter formula for squaring a wall was 6-8-10.
Meaing…6’ on one leg of the wall, 8’ on the other…should be 10’ across.
It is displayed in one of the formulas you have. Just simplified.
